I just received my new Mak 16II, for whatever reason, the reel is making lots of noise as if something is loose inside. Anyone have this issue?

My Mak 16 is very quiet. If it is an issue, contact Eddie at Okuma and he will take care of you.

Yep, if you live in Glendora you really aren't that far from Okuma in Ontario. I had an issue with a spinner once, several years ago. Took it in, they took it into the back and handed it back to me five minutes later with the problem resolved. Actually nice that you live close by.

Bummer to hear about that, my mak16 started to grind after my fish large bft last year but like everyone said I sent it in and got it back a few days later. What sucks is that yours is right out of the box, but it's an easy fix, better now then on a once in a lifetime fish. If you don't want to send it in you can always take it back from where you got it from if they are closer. I personally would take it in so that they can look it all over and make sure it's perfect. Once everything is settled tho your gonna love that reel! Tight lines

The reel is brand new and haven't been fished yet. The retrieve is smooth like it's supposed to be just making a lot of rattle noise. Thought about opening it up and do it myself but it's a brand new reel I rather have Okuma check it out first.
